A New York judge is presiding over the divorce proceedings of a Jewish couple. When the final papers have been signed, and the divorce is complete, the woman thanks the judge and says, “Now I have to arrange for a Get.”
The judge inquires as to what she means by a “Get.” So, the woman explains that a Get is a religious ceremony required under the Jewish religion in order to receive a divorce recognized by the Jewish faith.
The judge says, “You mean a religious ceremony like a Bris?”
She replies, “Yes, very similar, only in this case you get ride of the whole shmekel!”
